Revamped Google Nexus 7 seen with Android 4.3 at the FCC?
With the only new device seen at Google I/O a "Google Edition" of the Samsung Galaxy S4 with stock Android on board, there is talk that we will soon see an updated version of the Google Nexus 7 tablet built by ASUS. Could that be the slate that was seen visiting the FCC the other day? The device was powered by Android 4.3 which was confirmed when the same tablet, the ASUS K008/K009, was spotted at the Bluetooth SIG, getting certified for Bluetooth 4.0.

This new 7 inch tablet has a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The CPU under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro with the Adreno 320 GPU handling the graphics. 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage are aboard and the camera around back is 5MP. The snapper on front of the tablet weighs in at 1.3MP and it all runs on a 3950mAh cell. There is support for NFC and LTE and there could also be support for Qi wireless charging. The bezel will be thinner than the one on the current Google Nexus 7 and the case will be thinner with a measurement between 7.5mm and 8mm.

Not introduced at Computex as originally hoped. the tablet is now expected to be unveiled around the same time that Android 4.3 is. The question now is whether this will be a new Google Nexus 7 model or merely a new ASUS branded slab that happens to run stock Android.
